Brendan O'Carroll and the rest of the cast of Mrs Brown's Boys have reunited for the first read through of the show's live Halloween spectacular, as well as the annual Christmas episode.

The BBC confirmed the sitcom will return for a one-off live performance next month to mark 10 years since the comedy began on TV.

O’Carroll's creation, in which he stars as the misbehaving Irish matriarch Agnes Brown, will return to the screens for another live performance after first airing live in 2016.

Following the announcement, the comedian said: "It’s a huge thrill to do another 'live' show for the BBC. It’ll be so wonderful to see them nervous all over again."

And they now have a bit of an idea of what the episode will entail after the first table read took place at BBC Scotland on Wednesday morning.

A post on the official Mrs Brown's Boys Facebook page saw Brendan pose alongside his wife Jennifer Gibney, who plays his daughter Kathy in the hit show.

We also saw the table read snapped - with Brendan's daughter Fiona (who plays Maria in the comedy) giving a sneak peek at the scripts on her instagram page.

The news comes after several of the show's stars walked away from the hit series due to a pay dispute.

Gary Hollywood admitted that he had suffered the "worst year of his life" since quitting show.

The 41-year-old Scottish actor was famed for his role as hairdresser Dino Doyle in the divisive Irish sitcom, and played the part from 2004 until 2020.


But he dramatically quit last year amid reports of a dispute over pay alongside fellow actor Damien McKiernan, who played Dino's boyfriend Rory.

After Gary reportedly questioned the pay gap, he was told he would have a reduced role during the festive specials, which was the last straw and prompted him to quit.

Damien, on the other hand, was told his character had been axed.
